Please help Anyone,
I need help as my PC has broke....
I was only playing a game (footy manager game) when all of a sudden dink it went off, not a slow shutdown just bang gone.
I'm not used to these ATX machines but is the Power Supply soft-controlled by the Motherboard as there is no direct connection between the on/off switch and the 350w PSU at the back of the case as there is on an older AT cases?
I do not have another case to put the psu in nor do I have a spare MB. Is there any way I can check the PSU even by plugging it into the mains?
There are absolutely no indications on nor do any of the fans (psu, graphics card, hdd cooler) rotate or even hum for that matter.
I suspect the PSU is completely duff but I am worried that my MB may have caused it as I don't know how the psu generates its power or if it's controlled by the MB. I have checked the inside of the PSU and the fuse is still intact and there is no evidence of overheating.
